In  1619,  a  year  marked  by  several  important  events  in  the 
Colony,  including  the  assembling  of  the  first  General  As- 
sembly, the  London  Company  adopted  a  "Cote  for  Virginia'". 
The  coat-of-arms  has  been  a  puzzle  and  source  of  specula- 
tion to  every  historian  and  has  been  sometimes  confused  with 
the  proper  seal  of  the  Colony  itself.  It  is  found  as  a  book 
plate  or  frontispiece  in  nearly  all  of  the  printed  acts  and 
official  proceedings  of  the  Colonial  government.  It  appears 
in  Smith's  Generall  Historie  of  Virginia,  editions  1624  and 
1632 ;  in  Beverley's  History  of  Virginia,  in  several  issues  of 
the  Virginia  Gazette,  and  in  Stow's  Survey  of  London,  pub- 
lished in  1633.  It  was  changed  slightly  from  time  to  time 
to  make  the  quarterings  agree  with  the  arms  of  the  different 
reigning  houses,  and  after  the  union  of  England  and  Scot- 
land "quartam"  succeeded  "quintum"  in  the  motto.  The 
illustration  is  from  the  title  page  of  Merchants  of  Virginia 
in  the  Virginia  State  Library  and  the  colors  were  selected 
arbitrarily.

Cover: 

The  Coat-of-Arms  on  the  cover  has  been  adopted  as  the  symbol  of  the  entire 
work  and  will  be  used  to  identify  the  five  volumes  as  typically  Virginian. 
The  escutcheon  is  quartered  with  a  ship,  scroll,  tobacco  leaf  and  dogwood 
blossom,  crested  by  the  Indian  maiden  Pocahontas.  The  supporters  represent 
a  cavalier  and  a  pioneer.    The  colors  were  selected  arbitrarily.

Early  Colonial  Seals 


Seal  of  the  Virginia  Company 


Seal  of  Virginia  after  the  Restoration 


The  Seal  of  the  Supreme  Council  in  England  was  closely 
identified  with  the  settlement  in  Virginia.  The  obverse  of 
the  seal  on  the  left  is  from  The  Seals  of  Virginia  by  Edward 
S.  Evans,  and  was  taken  from  Egerton  Mss.  2,087  fo.  3  in 
the  British  Museum.  It  is  from  a  certificate  of  payment  for  a 
share  in  a  venture  to  Virginia.  The  reverse  of  the  seal  on  the 
right  has  been  retouched  to  conform  as  near  as  possible  to  the 
original  and  was  taken  from  Neill's  Virginia  Vetusta,  p.  4. 


The  lack  of  a  Seal  in  the  Colony  extended  over  the  period 
of  the  Commonwealth  and  over  part  of  the  first  year  in  the 
reign  of  Charles  II,  who  was  restored  to  the  throne  in  May. 
1660.  Less  than  a  year  later  a  new  seal  was  devised,  en- 
graved and  sent  to  the  Colony.  The  illustration  is  from 
Evans'  The  Seals  of  Virginia.  In  the  Virginia  Historical 
Society  collections  there  is  among  the  Ludwell  Mss.  a  patent, 
dated  27th  of  October,  1663,  bearing  this  seal.  Other  speci- 
mens in  the  Virginia  State  Library,  are  a  patent  granted  by 
Sir  William  Berkeley  to  Thomas  Bushrod  in  Westmoreland 
County,  dated  2nd  July,  1669,  and  a  patent  granted  by  Sir 
William  Berkeley,  dated  13th  of  March,  1667,  to  William 
Dudley  in  Lancaster. 


GENERAL  FOREWORD 

God  sifted  a  whole  nation  that  He  might 
send  His  choice  grain  into  the  Wilderness. 

NTO  the  wilderness  of  the  new  world  I  am  certain  God 
sent  the  choice  grain  of  many  nations,  and  it  is  upon  the 
fruit  of  this  planting  my  thoughts  dwell  as  I  lay  aside 
my  completed  work  for  this  first  volume.  I  wish  everyone 
interested  in  the  foundation  and  preservation  of  these 
United  States  could  stand  in  the  shadows  of  the  Old  Church  at  Jamestown 
and  the  Old  Rock  at  Plymouth  and,  gazing  seaward,  visualize  those  little 
ships  as  they  approached  the  shores  of  this  land  of  promise.  The  emotion 
I  feel  is  as  deep  and  my  appreciation  as  sincere  when  I  go  to  Plymouth 
as  when  I  stand  on  Jamestown  Island.  Consecrated  by  the  blood  of  noble 
men  and  courageous  women,  'tis  hallowed  ground.  By  whatever  name 
they  are  called — Cavalier,  Pilgrim  or  Puritan — they  were  all  Pioneers,  and 
to  those  dauntless  souls  who  made  history  in  the  memorable  years  1607 
and  1620  we  owe  a  debt  of  eternal  gratitude.  Numerous  names  and 
deeds  have  escaped  recordation,  due  in  many  instances  to  the  destruction 
of  records,  but  it  is  hoped  these  Abstracts  will,  in  a  small  measure, 
perpetuate  the  indomitable  spirit  of  these  pathfinders  of  the  sea  and  those 
who  later  blazed  trails  across  the  western  frontier — the  inspiration  and 
keynote  of  American  progress  and  independence. 

In  handling  these  old  manuscript  volumes  one  realizes  there  is  much 
of  romance  and  tragedy,  as  well  as  of  history  and  genealogy,  bound 
within  them.  There  is  evidence  of  the  ravages  of  time  and  mute  testimony 
of  mutilation  by  persons  unaware  of  their  value  and  true  significance. 
A  brief  summary  of  the  Land  Office  records  to  1800  is  as  follows: 
45  volumes  or  24,983  pages  of  Colonial  Patents;  22y2  volumes  or  8,371 
pages  of  Northern  Neck  Deeds  (issued  by  Thomas,  Lord  Fairfax,  begin- 
ning in  1690)  ;  67  volumes  or  47,769  pages  of  Commonwealth  Grants 
(beginning  in  1779)  and  ll/2  volumes  or  4,782  pages  of  Northern  Neck 


x.  General  Foreword 


Grants  subsequent  to  the  Revolutionary  War,  making  a  total  of  142 
manuscript  volumes,  representing  85,905  pages. 

Renewals  of  original  patents  by  the  Regal  Government  is  often  con- 
fusing and  the  tendency  to  accept  each  entry  as  a  new  patent  is  so 
prevalent,  attention  is  called  to  renewals,  as  cited  in  these  Abstracts,  which 
greatly  reduces  the  actual  number  of  acres  to  individuals  and  indicates 
many  conveyances  were  merely  confirmations  of  earlier  titles.  No  attempt 
will  be  made  to  approximate  the  acreage  granted  by  the  Commonwealth, 
as  overlapping  grants  create  complications,  an  explanation  of  which 
requires  the  combined  skill  and  ingenuity  of  lawyers  and  engineers. 
Alexander  Wolcott  and  Robert  Morris  were  two  of  a  great  number  to 
whom  the  State  of  Virginia,  in  the  post-Revolutionary  period,  issued 
paper  title  to  enormous  tracts  of  land.  Their  grants  range  from  1,000  to 
350,000  acres,  aggregating,  respectively,  1,012,500  and  1,590,560  acres. 
For  those  who  are  not  familiar  with  the  political  subdivisions  of  the 
State,  and  those  who  may  never  see  the  original  records,  maps  of  historical 
significance  are  used  as  end  sheets  and  inserted  in  these  volumes,  as  well 
as  photographic  reproductions  of  patents  and  grants. 

Words  cannot  express  my  appreciation  to  Miss  Sitterding,  my 
Patroness;  to  the  Honourable  George  Campbell  Peery,  Governor  of 
Virginia,  who  wrote  a  personal  letter  to  the  Clerks  of  the  various  county 
courts,  I  am  grateful  for  the  assurance  that  none  of  the  early  Patent  Books 
are  filed  in  said  courts.  To  Mr.  John  W.  Garner,  of  Falls  Church,  Dr. 
Robert  Armistead  Stewart,  Dr.  Earl  G.  Swem,  Dr.  W.  J.  Showalter, 
Dr.  Thomas  Perkins  Abernethy,  Honourable  Wilmer  L.  Hall,  State 
Librarian,  and  The  Dietz  Press  I  am  deeply  appreciative  of  their  interest 
and  co-operation.

INTRODUCTION 

jN  the  series  of  volumes  of  Land  Patents  deposited  in  the 
Virginia  Land  Office  in  the  Capitol  Building,  Richmond, 
the  Commonwealth  possesses  one  of  the  great  historical 
treasures  of  America — the  record  of  land  granted  to 
"Adventurers  and  Planters"  from  overseas  and  in  the 
course  of  time  to  native-born  Virginians  and  others,  extending,  apart 
from  a  hiatus  of  two  years,  from  the  year  1624  (with  a  few  grants 
surviving  from  an  earlier  period)  to  the  opening  of  the  nineteenth  century. 
Through  the  labors  of  the  Custodian  of  the  Virginia  Land  Archives, 
Mrs.  Nell  M.  Nugent,  eminently  qualified  for  the  tremendous  task  by 
reason  of  her  early  legal  training  and  her  experience  with  court  records, 
these  invaluable  documents  are  now  made  generally  accessible  to  the 
student  of  history  and  to  the  genealogist,  in  the  form  of  abstracts  contain- 
ing all  names  of  persons  and  of  places,  dates  and  land  bounds  recorded 
therein,  with  the  inclusion  in  their  entirety  of  certain  patents  in  order  to 
exhibit  legal  formulae  of  grants  varying  with  succeeding  governments 
and  administrations.  To  this  wealth  of  material  a  comprehensive  Index 
furnishes  the  key. 

The  fruit  of  devoted  industry  and  zeal,  this  work  must  challenge 
attention  as  a  contribution  of  the  first  rank  to  the  published  historical 
documents  concerning  the  earliest  permanent  British  plantation  in  America 
and  the  Commonwealth  that  emerged  from  it. 

The  Historical  Background 

On  April  10,  1606  Letters  Patents  were  granted  by  James  the  First 
King  of  England,  &c.  to  Sir  Thomas  Gates,  Sir  George  Somers,  Knights, 
Richard  Hackluit,  Clerk,  Prebendary  of  Westminster,  Edward-Maria 
Wingfield,  and  others  *  *  *  adventurers  of  and  for  our  City  of  London 
*  *  *  for  two  several  Colonies  and  Plantations  to  be  made  in  Virginia 
and  other  parts  and  Territories  of  America.*

A  governing  body  was  established  in  England  called  "Our  Council  of 
Virginia"  with  an  approved  seal,  which  was  to  designate  the  local  Council 
in  the  colony,  And  it  was  further  decreed,  "that  all  and  every  the  persons 
being  our  subjects,  which  shall  dwell  and  inhabit  within  every  or  any  of 
the  said  several  colonies  and  plantations  and  every  of  their  children,  which 
shall  happen  to  be  born  within  any  of  the  limits  and  precincts  of  the  said 
several  colonies  and  plantations,  shall  have  and  enjoy  all  liberties,  fran- 
chises, and  immunities,  within  any  of  our  other  dominions,  to  all  intents 
and  purposes,  as  if  they  had  been  abiding  and  born,  within  the  realm  of 
England,  or  any  other  of  our  said  dominions." 

Under  the  power  of  this  charter  and  through  the  enterprise  of  the 
adventurers  resulted  the  sailing  of  the  Susan  Constant,  the  Godspeed,  and 
the  Discovery,  the  arrival  at  Jamestown  on  May  13,  1607,  and  the  plant- 
ing of  one  hundred  settlers.  Eight  or  nine  months  afterwards  came  the 
"First  Supply"  of  one  hundred  and  twenty  colonists  in  the  John  &  Francis 
and  the  Phenix,  and  in  October,  1608  arrived  the  "Second  Supply,"  the 
Mary  Margett,  with  sixty  persons  "mostly  gentlemen,  few  or  no  tradesmen 
except  some  Polanders  to  Make  Pitch,  tarre,  potashes  &c.  *  *  *" 

The  Second  Charter,*  signed  and  sealed  on  May  23,  1609,  granted  to 
the  adventurers  mentioned  in  the  First  Charter  and  to  others  the  formation 
of  "one  body  or  commonalty  perpetual,  to  be  known  as  the  Treasurer 
and  Company  of  Adventurers  of  the  City  of  London  for  the  First  Colony 
of  Virginia" — the  London  Company.  Under  this  reorganization  of  1609 
the  administration  of  local  affairs  was  delegated  to  a  governor  and  a 
Council  to  reside  in  the  Colony.  Sir  Thomas  Smythe  became  the  first 
Treasurer  of  the  Company. 

"Nominated  as  Planters  were  those  that  go  there  in  person  to  dwell 
themselves  and  Adventurers  those  who  adventure  their  mony  and  go  not 
in  person  and  both  do  make  the  members  of  one  Colony."  A  single  share 
in  the  Company  was  rated  at  twelve  pounds  ten  shillings. 

The  presidents  of  the  Virginia  council  under  the  First  Charter  were 
Edward-Maria  Wingfield,  Mathew  Scrivener,  Capt.  John  Smith,  and  George 
Percy,  son  of  the  eighth  Earl  of  Northumberland.  In  later  days  John  Rolfe, 
husband  of  Pocahontas,  voiced  an  objection  to  this  system  of  government: 
"The  beginning  of  this  plantation  was  governed  by  a  president  and  coun- 
cill,  aristocratically  and  in  this  government  happened  all  the  miserie."f

Introduction  xiii. 


Under  the  second  charter  Sir  Thomas  Gates,  who  "had  the  honour 
to  all  posterity  to  be  the  first  named  in  his  Majestys  Pattent  of  graunt  in 
Virginia,"  was  chosen  the  first  and  absolute  governor.  In  June,  1609  he 
left  England  in  a  fleet  of  seven  ships,  known  as  the  "Third  Supply," 
carrying  about  500  settlers.  The  ships  were  unhappily  scattered  by  a 
tempest,  and  Sir  Thomas'  own  vessel  wrecked  on  the  coast  of  Bermuda. 
The  other  six  ships  of  the  fleet  proceeded  to  Virginia,  and  reached  the 
settlement  in  safety.  But,  after  some  months,  all  the  colonists  were  "in  the 
extremity  of  famine"  when  "unexpected,  yet  happily  arrived  Sir  Thomas 
Gates  &  Sir  George  Somers  in  two  small  Barques,  which  they  built  in  the 
Sommer  Islands  after  the  wreake  of  the  Sea  adventure  whereon  they  set 
forth  from  Englande,  with  them  one  hundred  persons  barely  provided  of 
vittel  for  themselves." 

The  new  comers,  on  their  arrival  on  May  20,  1611,  discovered  no 
more  than  sixty  of  the  settlers  alive  "most  famished  and  at  pointe  of 
death,  of  whom  many  soon  died."  In  1609  Capt.  Smith  had  "divided 
into  three  partes  and  dispersed  about  for  their  better  releife,  The 
first  under  command  of  Captain  Francis  West  to  seat  at  the  head  of 
the  River ;  a  second  under  command  of  Captain  John  Smith,  the  President, 
at  James  Towne,  &  the  other,  with  Capt.  John  Martin  in  the  River  at 
Nansamun."* 

In  the  year  1610,  however,  Gates,  despairing  of  maintaining  the 
Colony,  resolved  with  the  consent  of  the  Council  "to  embarque  themselves 
&  this  poor  remainder  of  the  Collonye,  in  those  two  pinnaces  [in  which 
Gates  and  Somers  had  arrived]  &  two  other  small  Barques  then  in  the 
River  to  sett  saile  for  Newfoundland  where  they  might  relieve  their  wants 
&  procure  one  safer  passage  for  Englande  *  *  *  but  when  we  had  sailed 
down  the  river  about  twelve  miles  we  espied  a  boat  which  afterwards  we 
understoode  came  from  the  right  Honourable  Lord  La  Ware,  who  was 
then  arrived  at  Point  Comfort  with  three  good  shipps,  wherein  he  brought 
two  hundred  and  fifty  persons  with  some  store  of  provisions  *  *  *  Sir 
Thomas  Gates  understandinge  that  his  Lordship  was  arrived  with  a  com- 
mission from  the  Company  to  be  Governor  &  Capt  Genl  of  Virginia  and 
had  brought  men  &  provisions  for  the  subsistinge  &  advancinge  of  the 

*Breife  Declaration  of  the  Plantation  of  Virginia  duringe  the  first  twelve  yeares  when  Sir 
Thomas  Smith  was  Governor  of  the  Companie,  &  downe  to  this  present  tyme.  By  the  Ancient 
Planters   nowe   alive  in   Virginia.    Colonial   Records  of   Virginia,    pp.    69-83.

Plantation,  he  the  very  next  day  to  the  grief e  of  all  his  Company  (only 
except  Capt.  John  Martin)  as  winde  &  weather  gave  leave,  retorned  his 
whole  company  with  charge  to  take  possession  again  of  those  poor 
ruinated  habitations  at  James  Towne." 

The  new  Governor  devoted  himself  to  directing  the  repair  and  forti- 
fication of  the  settlement,  but,  balked  by  the  Indians  in  his  plan  to  dispatch 
an  expedition  to  the  mountains  in  search  of  gold  and  silver,  he  departed, 
broken  in  health,  for  the  West  Indies,  whence  he  shortly  afterwards 
returned  to  England.  With  only  Jamestown  and  Point  Comfort  held  by 
the  settlers  Capt.  George  Percy  administered  as  deputy  governor.  About 
a  fortnight  after  De  La  Warr's  departure  arrived  in  Virginia  a  small  ship 
called  the  Hercules  with  some  thirty  persons  and  provisions. 

After  Percy  left  Virginia  on  April  22,  1612  Gates,  Dale,  Yeardley 
and  Argall  successively  held  the  post  of  deputy  governor. 

On  March  27,  1611  Sir  Thomas  Dale  left  Land's  End  for  Virginia, 
with  300  people  in  three  ships  and  three  carvels,  and  carrying  domestic 
animals  and  supplies.  In  the  judgment  of  the  London  Company  he  "not 
only  adventured  his  person  in  that  service  in  a  time  of  the  greatest 
difficulty  but  alsoe  being  at  a  great  charge  in  furthering  the  action  and 
furnishing  him  selfe,  the  Council  of  Virginia  at  their  meeting  on  the 
18th  of  this  instant  *  *  *  agree  that  his  person  shall  be  Rated  at  the 
Summe  of  Seven  hundred  pounds  and  that  he  the  said  Sr  Thomas  Dale 
his  heires  Exors.  &  Admrs.  or  assignes  shall  have  ratably  according  to  the 
said  Summe  his  &  their  full  part  of  all  such  Lands  Tenements  and 
hereditaments  as  shall  from  time  to  time  be  their  recovered  planted  and 
inhabited   (&c)    *   *  *  Feb.  25,  [1610/11]."* 

Dale,  who  served  as  deputy  governor  until  August  1,  1611,  and,  after 
Gates  left  the  Colony,  from  March,  1614  to  May,  1616,  reached  Fort 
Algernourne,  or  Point  Comfort,  on  May  22,  1611.  Having  left  James 
Davis  as  captain  of  the  fort  at  Point  Comfort,  Dale  proceeded  to  restore 
forts  Charles  and  Henry  at  the  mouth  of  Hampton  River,  and  then  went 
to  Jamestown. 

After  effecting  improvements  at  the  first  settlement  he  removed  about 
Michaelmas  with  three  hundred  persons  for  the  building  of  Henrico  Town, 
otherwise  Henricopolis  (the  present  Dutch  Gap).  During  his  adminis- 
tration  also  occurred  the  planting  of  Bermuda  Hundred,   Charles   City

Hundred,  Curls,  Coxendale,  and  Shirley  Hundred.  He  undertook  the 
setting  up  of  salt  works.  But  all  his  achievements  resulted  from  submit- 
ting the  people  to  measures  of  uncommon  severity — a  species  of  martial 
law  that  found  favor  with  Sir  Thomas  Gates.  The  London  Company 
likewise  was  not  unappreciative :  "Sir  Thomas  Dale  building  upon  those 
foundacons  [laid  by  Sir  Thomas  Gates]  with  great  &  constant  severity, 
reclaymed  almost  miraculously  those  idle  and  disordered  people  and  re- 
duced them  to  labour  and  an  honest  fashion  of  life,  and  proceeding  with 
great  zeale  to  the  good  of  this  Company,  set  up  the  Common  Garden  to 
yield  them  a  standing  revennue,  placed  servants  upon  it,  as  also  upon  other 
Publique  workes  for  the  Companies  use,  Established  an  Annuall  rent  of 
Corne  for  the  ffarmers,  Of  Tribute  Corne  from  the  Barbarians,  together 
with  a  great  stock  of  Kine,  Goates,  and  other  Cattle,  being  the  goodes  of 
the  Companie  for  the  service  of  the  Publique,  which  hath  since  beene 
the  occasion  of  drawing  so  many  perticuler  Plantacons  to  seate  in  Virginia 
upon  hope  and  promise  of  plenty  of  Corne  and  Catle  to  be  lent  them 
from  the  Publique,  for  their  ease  and  benefitt  upon  their  first  arrivall, 
But  since  their  times  all  these  publique  provisions  havinge  beene  utterly 
laid  wast  by  such  meanes  as  hereafter  in  due  time  shall  appeare." 

However,  despite  all  Dale's  activities,  only  three  hundred  persons 
were  living  in  Virginia  and  his  new  town  of  Henricopolis  was  already 
falling  into  decay  at  the  time  of  his  recall  in  1616. 

According  to  the  "Breife  Declaration,"  "The  supplies  sent  out  of 
England  while  Sir  Thomas  Gates  and  Sir  Thomas  Dale  governed  were 
these:  a  small  barque  called  the  John  and  Francis,  which  brought  few 
men  and  less  victual ;  the  next  a  small  ship  called  the  Sarah,  with  the  like 
number  of  men  and  victuall,  the  next  a  ship  called  the  Tresorer,  wherein 
Captain  Samuel  Argoll,  bringinge  with  him  to  the  number  of  fiftie  good 
men,  which  ship  and  men  were  wholly  imployed  in  Trade  and  other 
services  for  relevinge  of  the  Collonye;  the  next  ship,  called  the  Elizabeth, 
and  with  about  thirteen  persons,  for  them  little  provision;  the  next  the 
same  Elizabeth  came  againe,  with  some  small  store  of  provisions  only;  in 
her  Sir  Thomas  Gates  went  for  Englande  [April,  1614],  leavinge  the 
government  with  Sir  Thomas  Dale.   *    *    * 

"At  Michaelmas  following  arrived  a  small  ship  called  the  Susan  her 
lading  (being  the  first  Magazin)  consistinge  of  some  necessarye  pro- 
visions of  clothing."

George  Yeardley  succeeded  to  the  deputy  governorship  and  continued 
for  a  year  "under  whom  the  Colony  lived  in  peace  and  best  plentye  that 
ever  it  was  to  that  time." 

Yeardley  was  followed  by  Samuel  Argall,  who  continued  until  April 
10,  1619.  This  period  was  marked  by  the  planting  of  the  settlements  of 
Argalls  Gift,  Martin  Brandon,  Smith's  (later  Southampton)  Hundred, 
Weyanoke,  Flower  de  Hundred,  Martins  Hundred  and  Maycock  Hundred. 

Lord  De  La  Warr  died  at  sea  on  June  7,  1618,  when  he  was  on  his 
way  to  take  over  the  control  of  the  Colony  from  Argall,  who  had  rendered 
himself  obnoxious  to  the  Virginia  Company.  Owing  to  this  fatality 
Argall  retained  his  office  until  the  arrival  of  Yeardley  from  England. 
When  he  closed  his  administration  the  "Forts,  Towns,  and  Plantations" 
in  Virginia  were  "James  Citty,  Henrico,  Charles  City  and  Hundred, 
Shirley  Hundred,  Arrahattock,  Martin  Brandon  and  Kiccoughtan,  all  of 
which  were  but  poorly  housed  and  manned." 

Yeardley  left  England  on  January  19,  1619,  but  owing  to  "sore 
weather"  did  not  reach  his  destination  until  April  19,  1619.  With  him  he 
brought  the  Instructions  of  the  London  Company  dated  November  18, 
161 8  and,  among  other  directions,  their  commission  appointing  "300 
Acres  of  Land  to  be  sett  out  for  the  Governor  so  to  ease  the  Company 
henceforward  of  all  charge  in  mayntayning  him:  1200  Acres  of  Land  to 
be  the  Common  Land  of  the  Company  vizt  three  thousand  in  each  of  the 
ifower  old  Burroughs- 1000-acres  of  Land  for  the  university  to  be  planted 
at  Henrico;  of  which  100  for  the  Colledge  for  the  conversion  of  Infidells; 
the  next  care  was  the  placing  tenants  upon  these  lands." 

In  London,  on  April  28,  little  more  than  a  week  after  Yeardley  had 
reached  Virginia  "at  a  Quarter  Court  for  Virginia  at  Sir  Thomas  Smiths 
Howse  in  Philpott  Lane"  Sir  Thomas  Smythe,  *Treasurer  since  the  for- 
mation of  the  Company,  resigned  on  the  plea  of  his  complete  occupation 
by  new  official  duties  but  in  greater  likelihood  though  the  pressure  of  two 
parties  in  the  Company  combining  to  displace  him.  Over  two  other 
contestants  Sir  Edwin  Sandys  was  elected  by  a  large  majority  to  succeed 
Smythe  as  Treasurer.  Under  the  new  control  pronounced  changes  were 
made  in  the  previous  system;  a  colonist  was  now  assigned  a  divident  of 
land  and  conceded  a  share  in  the  government.

Introduction  xvii. 


Among  the  projects  under  the  new  order  was  one  of  November  3, 
1619  duly  carried  into  effect,  except  in  the  matter  of  number:  "Lastly 
he  wished  that  a  fit  hundredth  might  be  sent  of  woemen,  Maides  young 
and  uncorrupt  to  make  wives  to  the  Inhabitants  and  by  that  meanes  to 
make  them  more  setled  &  lesse  moveable  *  *  *  These  women  if  they  marry 
to  the  publique  farmers,  to  be  transported  at  the  charge  of  the  Company ; 
If  otherwise,  then  those  that  take  them  to  wife  to  pay  the  said  Company 
their  charges  of  transportation." 

Shortly  after  his  arrival  Governor  Yeardley  called  a  representative 
Assembly  to  convene  at  Jamestown,  the  first  legislative  body  to  meet  on 
American  soil.  And  this  year  1619  is  also  memorable  through  the  impor- 
tation, in  a  Dutch  ship,  of  the  first  negroes  into  the  Colony. 

Not  all  Sir  George  Yeardley' s  acts  met  with  approval  by  the  Company 
in  England.  When  Mr.  Markham  noted  to  the  court  a  grant  passed  unto 
him  by  Sir  George  Yeardley  provided  with  the  seale  of  the  Colony  on  con- 
dition that  he  compounded  with  Opachankano,  and  procured  a  confir- 
mation within  two  years  from  the  Company,  the  Council  emphatically 
affirmed  that  by  the  Kings  Letters  Patents,  no  other  but  the  Company  in 
London  and  that  in  the  Quarter  Court  had  the  right  to  dispose  of  land 
in  Virginia,  and  the  Governor  of  Virginia  had  merely  the  power  of  a 
Ministerial  officer  "to  sett  out  to  every  man  his  propper  divident  either 
by  direction  from  hence,  or  to  such  as  had  acquired  it  there  by  purchase 
or  service  and  therein  cheifely  to  respect  the  auncient  Adventurers  and 
Planters,  with  authority  also  to  passe  the  said  Grants  under  the  Collonies 
Seale,  if  they  did  desire  it,  but  not  to  make  an  absolute  Graunt." 

The  Company  also  condemned  "the  very  dishonorable  compounding 
with  Opechankano  whereby  a  Sovereignty  of  that  heathen  Infidell  was 
acknowledged,  and  the  Companies  Title  thereby  much  infringed.  It  was 
also  reputed  a  fraudulent  deed  unto  the  Grauntee,  and  of  purpose  onely  to 
drawe  a  ffee  from  him,  wch  by  report  is  very  excessive,  in  that  kinde, 
there  beinge  no  lesse  than  2011  waight  of  Tobacco  or  311  in  money 
demaunded  by  the  Secretary  there  fore  every  such  private  divident  of  50: 
or  100:  acres  passed  under  the  Seale  of  the  Colony  *  *  *"* 

When  Yeardley  retired  from  the  governorship  on  November  18,  1621, 
to  become  a  member  of  the  Council  in  Virginia,  the  population  of  the

Colony  was  estimated  at  1,200  people,  an  increase  of  about  850  since  the 
departure  of  Sir  Thomas  Dale. 

To  the  new  governor  and  captain  general,  Sir  Francis  Wyatt,  elected 
at  a  Court  of  the  London  Company  on  January  29,  1620/21,  authori- 
zation was  extended  to  govern  "as  fully  and  amply  as  any  Governor  and 
Council  resident  there  at  any  time  within  the  space  of  five  years  now  last 
past  might  performe  or  execute."  Sir  Francis  arrived  in  Virginia  in 
October,  1621,  and  with  him  came  his  brother,  the  Rev.  Haute  Wyatt, 
William  Clayborne  with  an  appointment  as  surveyor-general  of  the 
Colony,  Dr.  John  Pott,  physician-general,  and  the  Colony's  new  treasurer, 
George  Sandys,  who  was  to  compose  in  Virginia  portions  of  his  noted 
translation  of  the  "Metamorphoses"  of  Ovid. 

Sir  Francis  Wyatt's  commission  defined  the  powers  of  the  Governor 
and  Council,  and  permitted  the  people  to  choose  Burgesses  to  represent 
them  in  a  popular  Assembly.*  But  at  this  time  when  reforms  showed 
promise  of  fruitfulness  occurred  the  most  cruel  blow  that  the  Colony  had 
as  yet  experienced.  On  March  22,  1621/2  the  Indians,  under  the  leader- 
ship of  Opechancanough  (Opechankano) ,  brother  of  Powhatan,  massacred 
347  of  the  1,240  white  inhabitants  of  the  Colony.  Jamestown  and  the 
neighboring  settlements  were  only  saved  by  the  timely  warning  of  the 
Christian  Indian  Chanco.  Yet  even  after  this  "deadly  stroake  given  to 
the  great  amazement  and  mine  of  the  state"  emigration  from  England 
went  on  undeterred,  in  the  spirit  voiced  by  Mr.  Truelove  and  his  Asso- 
ciates on  July  17,  1623:  "no  whitt  discouraged  with  the  late  Massacre  of 
the  English  by  the  treacherous  Indians  they  were  resolved  to  set  forth  for 
their  Plantations."  f 

And  the  stricken  Colony  was  soon  to  have  news  of  radical  changes 
from  over  the  water.  Largely  as  an  outcome  of  the  incessant  and  violent 
attacks  by  the  former  Treasurer,  Sir  Thomas  Smythe,  allied  with  the  Earl 
of  Warwick,  upon  the  administration  of  the  London  Company  by  Sir 
Edwin  Sandys  and  the  Earl  of  Southampton,  the  Charter  of  the  Company 
was,  at  the  instance  of  the  King,  abrogated  by  the  Courts  in  June,  1624, 
and  as  a  consequence  the  administration  of  the  Colony  and  the  disposal  of 
its  land  came  under  the  immediate  control  of  the  Crown.  The  extinction  of 
the  London  Company  gave  little  satisfaction  to  Governor  Wyatt  and  other

men  of  prominence  in  Virginia,  who  expressed  their  remonstrance,  over 
their  signatures,  in  "The  Tragicall  Relacon,"  but  without  avail.  However, 
Charles  the  First,  who  ascended  the  throne  on  March  27,  1625,  issued 
his  proclamation  on  May  13  after  his  accession,  declaring  that  it  was  not 
his  purpose  to  "take  away  or  impeach  the  particular  interest  of  any  private 
planter  or  adventurer,  nor  to  alter  the  same  otherwise  than  should  be 
necessary  for  the  good  of  the  public."* 

Sir  Francis  Wyatt  continued  to  serve  as  governor  until,  at  his  own 
request,  he  was  relieved  of  his  office  in  May,  1626.  Sir  George  Yeardley 
once  more  became  governor  and  continued  until  his  death,  whereupon 
Capt.  Francis  West  succeeded  as  deputy  governor  and  held  office  until 
March  2,  1629,  when  Dr.  John  Pott,  who  had  come  to  Virginia  as  physi- 
cian-general, was  elected  by  the  Council  West's  successor.  The  next  gover- 
nor was  the  contentious  Sir  John  Harvey,  during  whose  tenure  of  office 
Kent  Island  and  the  shores  of  the  York  were  first  settled.  After  he 
had  deposed  Claiborne  from  his  office  as  secretary  of  state  on  account  of 
the  latter's  clash  with  Lord  Baltimore  Harvey  was  himself  deposed  from 
the  governorship  by  the  council,  with  the  concurrence  of  the  Assembly. 
And  Capt.  John  West  acted  as  deputy  governor  from  April  28,  1635 
until  January  19,  1637,  when  Harvey  was  restored  by  act  of  the  King,  who 
proceeded  to  take  action  against  the  Governor's  deposers  on  the  ground 
that  they  had  proceeded  as  if  by  "an  act  of  regal  authority." 

Harvey,  on  his  return  to  Jamestown,  improved  his  capital  by  the 
addition  of  about  twelve  new  houses  and  planned  towards  erecting  a 
church  and  a  statehouse  of  brick,  but  his  administration  was  not  of  suffi- 
cient duration  to  carry  all  his  plans  into  effect.  In  consequence  of  his 
persistent  mischief-making  and  tyranny  Harvey  was  removed  by  royal 
decree,  and  in  August,  1639,  Sir  Francis  Wyatt  again  became  governor  and 
continued  in  the  office  until  the  coming  of  Berkeley  in  1642. 

Sir  William  Berkeley,  commissioned  by  the  King  governor  of  Virginia 
on  April  2,  1641,  with  the  assurance  that  there  would  be  no  restoration  of 
the  charter  (a  measure  agitated  in  Wyatt' s  administration),  reached  the 
colony  in  February,  1642.  About  two  months  after  the  second  Indian 
massacre,  which  occurred  on  April  18,  1644,  Berkeley  returned  to  England, 
leaving  as  deputy  governor  his  secretary,  the  Councillor  Richard  Kemp. 

In  the  year  of  the  execution  of  King  Charles  and  the  establishment  of

the  Commonwealth  in  England  (1649)  appeared  the  "Perfect  Description 
of  Virginia,"  with  the  following  information:  "There  are  about  15,000 
English  in  Virginia  and  of  Negros  brought  thither  three  hundred  good 
servants.  About  29  sail  a  year  trade  with  them  and  return  home  laden  in 
March.  Most  of  the  Masters  of  Ships  and  Mariners  also  have  plantations 
there  and  houses  and  servants  *  *  *  About  a  thousand  English  are  seated 
on  the  Accomac  Shore  by  Cape  Charles  where  Captain  Yeardley  is  now 
chief  commander  (now  commonly  called  the  county  of  Northampton) 
*  *  *    There  are  twelve  counties  in  Virginia  and  20  churches." 

During  the  Civil  War  in  Britain  a  considerable  number  of  Royalists 
emigrated  to  Virginia,  which  held  steadfast  to  the  old  regime  until  the 
arrival  of  the  Parliamentary  fleet.  Then,  without  attempting  resistance, 
Virginia  agreed  to  an  accommodation.  Berkeley  retired  to  his  country  estate 
"Greenspring,"  and  on  April  30,  1652  the  Puritan  Richard  Bennett,  of 
Nansimond  County,  who  had  been  named  by  Parliament  as  one  of  the 
commissioners  to  effect  the  reduction  of  Virginia,  succeeded  to  the 
governorship. 

Edward  Digges,  the  second  governor  under  the  Commonwealth, 
administered  the  affairs  of  the  Colony  from  March  31,  1655  until  March 
13,  1658.  Digges  was  followed  by  Samuel  Mathews,  of  "Denbigh,' 
Warwick  County.  As  a  result  of  Governor  Mathews'  contention  that  the 
Council  possessed  the  authority  to  dissolve  the  Assembly,  both  Governor 
and  Council  were  deposed,  but  reinstated  on  their  agreement  to  take  an 
oath  of  recognition  of  the  popular  body.  On  the  death  of  Mathews  in 
January,  1660,  before  the  expiration  of  his  term  of  office,  the  General 
Assembly,  sensing  the  trend  of  affairs  in  England,  recalled  in  March  Sir 
William  Berkeley  to  his  former  office,  and,  on  September  20,  King  Charles 
the  Second  was  proclaimed  in  his  Dominion  of  Virginia. 

In  April,  1661/2,  on  the  departure  of  Berkeley  for  England  to  protest 
against  the  Navigation  Act,  Francis  Morryson  became  acting  governor, 
and  so  continued  until  Berkeley's  return  in  the  autumn  of  1662. 

Governmental  Divisions 

At  the  time  of  the  departure  of  Lord  De  La  Warr  from  the  Colony 
in  1610  only  James  Town  and  Point  Comfort  remained  in  the  tenure  of 
the  settlers.  Under  Gates  and  Dale  arose  new  Plantations  and  Hundreds 
(a  word  used  in  a  looser  sense  than  its  employment  in  England  as  a  county 


Introduction 


district  containing  a  court).  Parishes  also  appeared  but,  in  this  earlier 
period,  without  definite  bounds — a  region  served  by  a  minister  whose 
commission  was  to  convert  the  heathen  as  well  as  to  minister  to  the  settlers. 

A  Commissioner  of  Plantation  was  designated  as  the  governing  official 
of  each  Plantation  or  Hundred.  According  to  the  historian  Alexander 
Brown  the  four  incorporations  of  James  City,  Charles  City,  Henricus  and 
Kiccotan  (later  termed  Elizabeth  City)  date  from  the  administration  of 
Samuel  Argall.  They  were,  at  any  rate,  referred  to  as  the  "Old  Burroughs" 
as  early  as  1619. 

In  the  Assembly  of  1619,  summoned  by  Sir  George  Yeardley,  the  units 
represented  were:  Argall's  Gift,  Flowerdieu  Hundred,  Henricus,  James 
City,  Kiccowtan  (Elizabeth  City),  Lawnes  Plantation,  Martins  Hundred, 
Smythes  Hundred.  Capt.  Ward,  representative  of  his  plantation  on  the 
Eastern  Shore,  was  at  first  refused  recognition  on  the  ground  that  he  had 
planted  without  any  authority  or  commission  from  the  Treasurer  of  the 
London  Company. 

The  General  Assembly  of  March  1623/4  provided  "that  a  court  should 
be  held  once  a  month  in  Henrico  and  in  James  City,"  and  in  February, 
1631/2  the  Assembly  "Ordered  that  a  monthlie  Court  be  held  and  kept 
for  remote  parts  of  the  Collinie,  upper  parts,  Warwick  river,  Warwick- 
squeake,  Elizabeth  City,  Accomac,  and  at  James  City,  four  quarter  Courts 
yearlie." 

Plantations,  hundreds  and  parishes  had  continued  to  multiply,  and  in 
1634*  it  was  decreed  that  they  should  be  grouped  into  eight  political 
divisions,  termed  shires  (more  commonly,  counties),  namely,  James  City, 
Henrico,  Charles  City,  Elizabeth  City,  Warwick  River,  Warrisquyoake, 
Charles  River,  and  Accomac — the  first  four  evolved  from  the  "Great 
Incorporations"  of  the  same  name. 

These  eight  shires  and  other  counties  created  in  the  period  covered  by 
the  present  volume  are  presented  in  the  table  at  the  end  of  Introduction. 

Division  of  the  Land 

On  the  establishment  of  the  settlement  in  Virginia  the  London  Com- 
pany determined  that  no  land  should  be  assigned  either  to  Planters  or 
Adventurers  until  seven  years  had  elapsed,  at  the  end  of  which  time  a 
division  v/as  to  be  made  by  Commissioners.

Sir  Edward  Sandys,  in  the  time  of  his  Treasurership,  observed  that  the 
Commodities  of  Virginia  had  three  several  sorts  of  owners;  First,  the 
Company;  second,  particular  Hundreds  and  Plantations,  belonging  to 
private  Adventurers  in  England,  as  Southampton  Hundred,  Martins 
Hundred,  and  the  like;  thirdly,  Planters  inhabiting  and  residing  in  Vir- 
ginia, which  part  he  conceived  to  be  far  the  largest  and  most  considerable. 

Grants  were  of  two  sorts:  one  to  such  as  were  adventurers  by  money 
paid  into  the  Treasury,  for  which  they  were  allowed  one  hundred  acres  of 
land  for  every  single  share  of  12  pounds  10  shillings,  and  the  other,  of 
planters,  who  were  allotted  two  shares  for  every  person  transported.  In 
the  "Great  Charter  of  Privileges  Orders  and  Laws"  of  1618  a  division  of 
lands  was  determined  on.  In  each  of  the  four  Boroughs  of  James  City 
Charles  City,  Henrico,  and  Kiccotan,  common  lands  were  to  be  set  aside 
for  the  support  of  the  magistrate,  the  church,  and  the  proposed  college. 
Adventurers  and  Planters  who  had  already  received  their  dividents  could 
have  land  laid  off  to  them  according  to  their  number  of  shares. 

And  in  the  matter  of  grants,  declaration  was  made  at  the  General 
Quarter  Court  at  London,  Nov.  18,  1619,  by  the  Treasurer,  Councill  and 
Company  that  "all  graunts  of  land  to  be  made  with  equal  favour  except 
the  differency  of  rent." 

The  "differency  of  rent" — tobacco,  capons,  merchantable  Indian 
corn — is  exemplified  in  the  abstracts  of  patents  in  the  present  volume.  A 
particularly  pointed  example  occurs  in  the  lease  to  Sergeant  James 
Hutchinson,  of  James  City  County,  Sept.  24,  1638,  "in  parcells  of  50  acres 
for  &  during  the  terme  of  21  yeares  from  Michaelmas  next  reserving  to 
the  Governor  and  the  Assembly  12  blls  of  Indian  come  &  further  pro- 
viding that  such  lessee  does  plant  and  seate  upon  such  land  at  Michaelmas 
[Sept.  29]  next  with  five  men  well  armed  at  the  least." 

The  exigency  in  the  form  of  the  rent  was  stressed  in  the  fourth  part 
of  the  Petition  to  the  Assembly  of  1619:  "that  a  sub  treasurer  be  ap- 
pointed here  (in  Virginia)  to  collect  the  rents  of  the  London  Company 
instead  of  requiring  the  impossibility  of  paying  them  in  England,  accord- 
ing to  the  letter  of  the  charter  to  exact  money  that  is  (whereof  we  have 
none  at  all  as  we  have  no  mint)  but  the  value  of  the  rent  in  com- 
modity *   *   *" 

"In  the  matter  of  tobacco  the  value  is  3  shillings  for  the  best  and 
18  pence  for  that  of  second  quality." 


Introduction  xxiii, 


In  regard  to  determining  the  bounds  of  dividents  the  arrival  of 
William  Clayborne,  surveyor  general,  in  the  Colony  did  not  put  an  end 
to  uncertainties  and  disputes. 

Among  the  "Laws  and  Orders"  of  the  General  Assembly,*  March  5, 
1623/4,  appears:  "That  every  privatt  planters  devident  shall  be  surveyed 
and  laid  out  in  several  and  the  bounds  recorded  by  the  survey ;  If  there  be 
any  pettie  difference  betwixt  neighbours  about  their  devidents  to  be 
devided  by  the  surveyor  if  of  much  importance  to  be  referred  to  the 
governor  and  counsell;  the  surveyor  to  have  10  lbs  of  tobacco  upon  every 
hundred  acres." 

But  disputes  over  bounds  and  encroachments  went  on,  as  the  Patent 
Books  and  County  records  reveal,  and  it  was  not  infrequently  the  case 
that  an  owner  would  re-patent  land  he  had  long  held  or  had  heired  in 
order  that,  with  his  land  bounds  reviewed  and  registered,  he  might  feel 
the  more  secure  in  his  possession. f 

The  Land  Patents 

The  early  land  patents  in  the  volumes  in  the  Land  Office  are  not  the 
original  entries,  but  are  transcriptions.  Book  I  (in  two  volumes),  tran- 
scribed in  the  year  1683,  is  the  work  of  the  Clerk  Edward  Harrison. 

With  the  beginning  of  the  distribution  of  land  by  patent  one  copy  of 
the  document  was  filed  in  the  records  of  the  Company  and  another  put 
in  the  possession  of  the  patentee,  who  was  to  produce  it  as  evidence  in 
case  of  dispute  as  to  ownership,  to  turn  it  over  to  the  new  owner  in  case 
of  assignment  by  deed,  and  in  the  event  of  his  death  during  possession 
the  document  passed  to  his  heirs  or  assigns. 

On  June  26,  1620,  the  Virginia  Company,  as  an  additional  safeguard, 
determined  "henceforeward  a  Duplicate  of  such  Pattents  as  are  graunted 
here  should  be  sent  to  Virginia  which  Mr.  Treasurer  said  should  all  be 
sealed  in  open  Court,  as  all  other  things  yett  had  been  during  his  time." 

For  the  official  preservation  of  patents  in  Virginia  there  seems  to  have 
been,  besides  the  entry  in  folios,  another  mode  of  disposal — by  loose 
leaves  hung  on  a  string.    See  memorandum  on  page  226. 

It  will  be  observed  that  the  patents  transcribed  are  not  presented  in 
strictly  chronological  order,  though  the  grouping  by  administrations  of

governors  is  in  general  faithfully  observed.  The  earliest  extant  patent,  by 
Yeardley  to  Fairefax,  dated  February  20,  1619  [1619/20]  is  found 
on  page  109,  entered  doubtless  at  the  time  the  document  first  came  to 
the  attention  of  the  transcribing  Clerk.  The  first  entries  in  Book  I  of 
the  Land  Grants  are  records  of  the  Corporations  of  James  City  and  of 
Elizabeth  City,  dating  from  1623-24.  The  Indian  Massacre,  the  burning 
of  James  Town  by  Bacon,  or  other  fatalities  may  account  for  the  disap- 
pearance of  most  of  the  earliest  patents.  Then,  too,  such  records  as  had 
survived  had  suffered  from  the  effect  of  time,  and  perhaps  the  chirography 
of  the  first  quarter  of  the  century  offered  certain  difficulties  to  readers  of 
a  half  century  later. 

Beginning  with  the  year  1624  it  may  be  assumed  that  the  great 
majority  of  land  grants  up  to  the  period  of  the  transcription  have  been 
preserved.  But  the  record  is  certainly  not  complete — how  far  from  com- 
plete there  is  now  no  means  of  determining.  In  the  one  surviving  record 
book  of  Charles  City  County  of  the  seventeenth  century  (1655-65)  appear 
entries  of  land  grants  (with  headrights  and  acreage  but  without  indicated 
bounds)  that  escaped  inclusion  in  the  Land  Books  that  cover  that  period. 

Headrights 

The  term  headrights  in  connection  with  a  patent  for  land  has  been 
subject  to  no  little  misunderstanding.    Elucidation  is  therefore  in  order. 

For  the  purpose  of  stimulating  immigration  and  the  settlement  of  the 
Colony  the  London  Company  ordained  that  any  person  who  paid  his  own 
way  to  Virginia  should  be  assigned  50  acres  of  land  "for  his  owne 
personal  adventure,"  and  if  he  transported  "at  his  owne  cost"  one  or  more 
persons  he  should,  for  each  person  whose  passage  he  paid,  be  awarded 
fifty  acres  of  land.  There  is,  for  instance,  the  case  of  Sir  Thomas  Lunsford, 
Knight  and  Baronett,  who  on  October  24,  1650  was  granted  3,423  acres 
for  the  transportation  of  sixty-five  persons  including  himself,  members  of 
his  family,  friends,  and  servants,  many  of  whom  were  doubtless  inden- 
tured, or  bound  for  a  period  of  service. 

Among  the  headrights  are  found  persons  of  all  social  classes,  nobility 
and  gentry,  yeomanry,  indentured  servants  (some  of  good  family  and 
connection  in  England),  and  negroes.  Among  the  headrights  of  Bertram 
Hobert,  October  10,  1642,  (p.  135)  appears  the  name  of  John 
Tredescant,  the  younger,  one  of  the  first  to  advertise  the  great  natural

richness  of  America  and  to  bring  back  to  the  mother  country  concrete 
evidence  of  the  beauty  and  wealth  of  flora  in  the  new  lands  beyond  the 
sea.  And  again,  in  February  6,  1654,  (page  303)  Tredescant  (Tredeskin) 
was  a  headright  of  William  Lea,  who,  by  paying  the  naturalist's  passage, 
was  entitled  to  50  acres  of  land  in  Virginia. 

It  is  not  to  be  assumed  that  the  claim  for  land  in  consequence  of  a 
person  transported  was  made  immediately  after  the  arrival  of  the  "head- 
right"  in  the  Colony.  There  is,  for  instance,  record  of  a  patentee  awarded 
land  for  the  transportation  of  three  wives,  who,  it  is  safe  to  conclude, 
were  successive.  The  headrights  may  have  arrived  in  the  Colony  long 
before  the  patentee  had  entered  claim  for  land  thereby  due.  Nor  is  it  to 
be  assumed  that  the  headright  is  necessarily  an  immigrant.  Even  men  of 
prominence  in  the  Colony,  through  a  voyage  or  repeated  voyages  to 
England  and  return,  appear  as  "headrights"  of  friends  or  relatives,  who 
acquitted  the  cost  of  the  passage  in  order  to  obtain  the  consequent  land. 
On  page  121  in  the  photographic  reproduction  of  a  patent,  January  6, 
1639/40,  of  Capt.  Nicholas  Martian  (Martiau),  the  French  Walloon, 
who  is  the  earliest  American  ancestor  of  George  Washington,  appear 
among  the  fourteen  persons  transported  at  his  own  cost  and  charges  Capt. 
Martian  himself,  his  wife,  a  son  and  a  daughter.  On  the  other  hand  in 
a  patent  of  Councillor  George  Read  (Reade),  of  November  2,  1658  (p. 
180)  the  headrights  include  Capt.  Martiau  (Martin),  his  wife,  and  his 
daughter  Elizabeth,  whom  Col.  Reade  married. 

Sea  captains  were  especially  active  in  the  acquisition  of  land  through 
the  transportation  of  settlers,  and  they  not  infrequently  acted  conjointly 
with  London  merchants.  An  instance  in  point  is  the  case  of  William 
Barker,  who,  in  association  with  Richard  Quiney,  citizen  and  grocer  of 
London  (brother  of  Shakespeare's  son-in-law,  Thomas  Quiney)  and  John 
Sadler  (brother-in-law  of  John  Harvard,  founder  of  Harvard  College), 
patented  great  tracts  at  Brandon  and  at  Merchant's  Hope,  held  by  them 
and  their  heirs  for  nearly  a  century. 

Before  obtaining  land  for  the  transportation  of  "headrights"  the 
claimant  was  required  to  present  a  receipt  in  proof  that  the  passage  money 
was  duly  paid.  But  despite  all  precautions  fraud  and  deception  were  by 
no  means  uncommon. 

As  a  safeguard,  particularly  in  the  case  of  those  persons  who  went 
at  their  own  cost,  the  London  Company,  on  November  18,  1623,  came

Ancient  Planters 

According  to  the  Charter  of  Orders  from  Sir  Thomas  Smythe  (referred 
to  as  "the  late  Treasurer"  in  patents  in  this  book),  November  18,  1618 
the  following  provision  was  made:  "*  *  *  And  forasmuch  as  our  intent 
is  to  establish  our  equal  Plantations  whereof  we  shall  speak  afterwards  be 
reduced  into  four  cities  or  Boroughs  namely  the  chief  city  called  James 
Town,  Charles  City,  Henrico,  and  the  Borough  of  Kiccotan  [later  Eliza- 
beth City],  And  that  in  all  those  foresaid  cities  or  Boroughs  the  ancient 
adventurers  and  Planters  which  were  transported  thither  with  Intent  to 
Inhabit  at  their  own  costs  and  charges  before  the  coming  away  of  Sir 
Thomas  Dale  Knight,  and  have  so  continued  during  the  space  of  three 
years,  shall  have  upon  a  first  Division  to  be  by  us  augmented  one  hundred 
acres  of  land  for  their  personal  adventure  and  as  much  for  every  single 
share  of  twelve  pounds  ten  shillings  paid  for  such  share  allotted  and  set 
out  to  be  held  by  them  their  Heirs  and  assignes  forever. 

"And  that  for  all  such  planters  as  were  brought  thither  at  the  Com- 
pany's charge  to  Inhabit  there  before  the  coming  away  of  the  said  Sir 
Thomas  Dale  after  their  time  of  service  to  the  Company  on  the  common 
Land  agreed  shall  be  expired  there  be  set  out  one  hundred  acres  of  Land 
for  each  of  their  Heirs  and  assigns  for  ever  paying  for  every  fifty  acres 
the  yearly  fee  Rent  of  one  shilling  to  the  said  Treasurer  and  company 
and  their  successors  at  one  entire  payment  on  the  feast  day  of  Saint 
Michaels  the  Archangel  forever.  And  in  regard  that  by  the  singular 
Industry  and  virtue  of  the  said  Sir  Thomas  Dale  the  former  Difficulties 
and  Dangers  were  in  greatest  part  overcome  to  the  great  ease  and  security 

*Records  of  the  Virginia  Company,"   Vol.   I,    373. 


Introduction  xxvii. 


of  such  as  have  been  since  that  time  transported  thither,  we  do  therefore 
hereby  ordain  that  all  such  persons  as  since  the  coming  away  of  the  said 
Sir  Thomas  Dale  have  at  their  own  charges  been  transported  thither  to 
Inhabit  and  so  continued  as  aforesaid  there  be  allotted  and  set  out  at  first 
Division  fifty  acres  of  Land  to  them  and  their  Heirs  forever  from  their 
Personal  adventure  paying  a  fee  rent  of  one  Shilling  yearly  in  manner 
aforesaid  and  that  all  persons  which  since  the  going  away  of  the  said 
Sir  Thomas  Dale  have  been  transported  thither  at  the  company's  charges 
or  which  hereafter  shall  be  so  transported  be  placed  as  Tenants  on  the 
company's  lands  for  the  term  of  seven  years  to  occupy  the  same  to  the  half 
part  of  the  profits  as  is  above  said." 

Those  who  had  worked  on  the  Company's  land  had  had  their  dis- 
appointments:   "A  little  before  the  departure  of  Sir  Thomas  Gates  many 
of  the  Ancient  planters   (by  the  instigation  of  Sir  Thomas  Dale),  upon 
promise  of  an  absolute  freedome  after  three  yeares  more  to  be  expired 
(having  most  of  them  served  the  Colenye  six  or  seven  yeares  in  that 
general  slavery)  were  yet  contented  to  serve  in  the  buildinge  of  Charles 
City  and  Hundred  with  very  little  allowance  of  clothinge  and  victuals." 
But  Ancient  Planters  were  to  have  immunities  as  well  as  rewards,  as 
appears  from  the  Laws  &  Orders  of  the  General  Assembly,  March  5, 
1623/4:    "That  all  the  old  planters  that  were  here  before  or  came  in  at 
the  coming  of  Sir  Thomas  Gates  they  and  their  posterity  shall  be  exempted 
from  their  personal  service  to  the  warr  and  any  public  charge    (church 
duties  excepted  that  belong  particularly  to  their  persons    (not  including 
their  families)   except  such  as  shall  be  employed  to  command  in  chief." 
In  compliance  with  the  Charter  of  Orders  Sir  George  Yeardley,  in 
1619,  made  without  doubt  a  number  of  grants  to  "Ancient  Planters,"  of 
which  only  one  is  now  extant — that  to  William  Fairefax,  (see  page  109). 
A  copy  of  a  bill  of  adventure,  dated  July  15,  1608,  in  consideration  of  the 
payment  of  12  lbs.  10  shillings,  to  Henry  Dawkes  is  cited  in  connection 
with  a  patent  to  his  son  William  Dawkes  "of  Verinas."     (See  page  15). 
The  following  list  includes  those  who  are  known  to  have  come  to 
Virginia  before  the  close  of  the  year  1616,  survived  the  massacre,  appear 
in  the  Muster  of   1624/5   as  then   living  in  Virginia,   and   to  most  of 
whom   the   term   "Ancient   Planter"   may  with   justification   be   applied. 
Certain    "Ancient   Planters" — Samuel   Jordan,    for   instance — had,    at 
the  time  the  Muster  was  taken,  recently  died.     (See  page  226) .
